Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Quick feet with good vision to pick through defenses. He has solid hands and body control and is a reliable receiver.
  • Has the feet and feel running between the tackles and in the open field. He has very good vision and patience to pick through defenses.
  • Has sneaky speed but won't always get to the corner. Runs low through the hole with size and strength to move the chains as an interior runner. Has a strong stiff-arm and spin move to slip defenders. Best in goal-line situations finds another level of determination. Good recognition as a runner and pass blocker. Natural receiver with versatility as a route-runner.
  • Demonstrated the ability to track the ball over his shoulder. Good flexibility and balance to adjust to the poorly thrown pass. Good vision and patience for screens.
  • Not truly explosive, but possesses enough speed to beat linebacker to the edge.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Not the most instinctive runner and too often tries for the big play, dancing and losing yards. Lacks the natural power to push the pile and feels more comfortable avoiding contact.
  • Does not always read blocks behind pulling guards. May not be big enough to move piles at the next level and has a tendency to bury his head too soon.
